Jim Sinclair tonight appeals to his comrades in golden arms for a little courage.

"Gold has always been a war between sound finance and debt-ridden currencies," Sinclair writes. "When you entered the fray you joined a band of brothers and sisters as foxhole buddies in this war for both gold's and our freedom." He proposes that they take a simple pledge not to be frightened and then offers Kenneth Branagh's performance of the St. Crispin's Day speech from "Henry V," likely the greatest and noblest passage from Shakespeare, who has the king's eloquence and righteousness carrying his vastly outnumbered soldiers to victory over the French army at Agincourt.

Gold bugs surely are engaged in a war -- not just a war between sound finance and dishonest currencies but a war between democracy and plutocracy, imperialism and national self-determination, truth and lies, justice and fraud, a war against all the power and money in the world. (Well, maybe not quite all the money, insofar as the gold bugs have some of the gold, as do some of the countries resisting imperialism.)

Shakespeare's Henry foresees that the courage of his soldiers will gain them remembrance "from this day to the ending of the world." Even Sinclair might not make such a grand claim for the gold bugs. But whether they are to be remembered or not, still, as Shakespeare writes, "This story shall the good man teach his son." It is the story Sinclair has been telling and GATA has been documenting and archiving lest it be forgotten again:

And the story is being heard -- even, the other day, by the Financial Times:

So as Sinclair writes there is no reason to lose heart now.

His commentary is headlined "The CIGA Pledge," it contains a link to a video of Branagh's performance, and it's posted at JSMineSet here:
